Visibility III / V
We were watching Jupiter with a telescope as I turned back to look at the sky, and I saw a fireball falling apart in the sky. The pieces spread quite widely, and then faded from view. The whole phenomenon lasted about a few seconds. In color, it was more orange and fiery than in the observational images on this page. On the other hand, I haven’t seen one before, so I don’t even know if that matters. However, it was a beautiful sight!
